Juneathon, day 17…and there’s no place like home

After five days, four nights and 1600 driving miles, I’m home from the Bonnaroo Music Festival.  Confession:  I set up my daily posts from Bonnaroo before I left, with the hope that I would be able to embellish them from the festival.  Turns out it was a good thing I set them up, because I had virtually no internet connectivity from the festival; no way to set up and publish a post.  Luckily I could make simple edits to what I’d already set up, but that is all. Physical activity was a constant at the festival.  We walked sooo much.

The Roo Run 5k on Saturday morning was a blast.  There was a costume competition, which brought out the best in running costumes. SAM_6024w--marked SAM_6028w--marked SAM_6029w--marked

(More photos to come as I get them all sorted.)

Injury report:  The 5k went fine, but I came home from the festival with a tender, swollen metatarsal pad on the bottom of my right foot, with blisters to compound the condition.  The cause was too much walking in flip-flops.  I had my running shoes and cross trainers with me on the trip, but opted for light and airy over comfort and support.  Shame on me.  It hurts to walk, run and stand.

Today’s activity was yoga, to strengthen my back and straighten out my posture after all of the lifting, and primitive sitting and sleeping conditions.  I also opted for yoga rather than even an easy mile, to make sure I won’t damage my foot further by attempting a run or walk too soon.  We’ll see how things feel tomorrow.
